Posterior Scleral Reinforcement as a means of myopia control

Pathologic myopia is one of the major causes of blindness worldwide (Xu).1 Degenerative changes associated with high myopia, including posterior staphyloma formation and scleral thinning, are caused by the progressive elongation of globe axial length and stretching of the sclera, choroid and retina.2 The aim of this meta-analysis was to investigate and quantitatively define the efficacy of PSR in controlling axial elongation and refraction progression.
